    ^^^Yeah, not quite sure where I left off with DD. It started out fun (wasn't it the first NF Marvel show?), but grew tiresome. I really liked Punisher s1, but I had to stop watching s2 after a couple of episodes because it was filmed in pitch dark. That's a major gripe I have with A LOT of TV/movies these days - unless you've got a light-tight home theater, you can't see what's going on in any dark scenes. A black screen with intermittent muzzle flashes isn't fun to watch. Bring back the omnipresent full moon blue light night scenes, please.

    Dude fucking seriously! Every once in awhile a random horror movie is too dark for me so I change my TV setting to DYNAMIC instead of STANDARD and it helps a bit but with some netflix shows it makes no difference at all. It's damn near pitch black even in a room with no lights on. I accept the fact my TV is getting old but that cannot be the only problem because daytime stuff looks perfect.

    Honestly, the only thing I remember was Bill Bixby's eyes turning weird then Lou Ferigno shows up. Also, the end of the show with the super sad music and hitchhiking. :D

    I concur! . . . It's the one role were his botched facelift and ensuing inability to move his face really worked in his favour!

    Glad it isn't just me. The first thing I do is whack the iPad brightness up to max when watching DD (and I did the same with much of The Punisher - even then it was like watching blobs of black ink battle in a dark room).

    So, back to Superman. I didn't watch the last few DC movies so I may not fully get what is going on. He seems like a child. Without Lois he is willing, if not desiring, to wipe out all of humanity. The way he does it isn't in a sense of power, like these other beings that either want something or want to conquer humanity, but more like a child burning ants with a magnifying glass. He does it because he is bored, it seems. That was the image I got. The other weird thing is that Lois looks like a twin to his mom. Same body shape, face, and demeanor. The only thing different was the hair color to make sure we knew his mom was older. Is that alien kink? Extraterrestrial oedipus? Grossed me out a bit. I'd like to know what true superman fans think of this take on superman.
